Peter Jackson appeared very aware of the potential problems with the middle film of any trilogy, responding to one fan’s question with:
“It is complicated to do a middle film, but the advantage is … we have multiple story lines … and we can start following multiple characters.”
Sounds enticing, as making a middle film into anything but a filler with untied endings and ragged beginnings can be a problem. Perhaps we will see a few complete stories within the overall arc; who knows? It is now almost legendary that enough footage has been shot to complete several movies.
